Lindstrom, MN (KROC-AM News) - Authorities in east-central Minnesota say a rain slickened road surface may have contributed to a fatal traffic crash Friday night.

The Lakes Area Police Department in Lindstrom says the Chisago County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call about 10:45 PM concerning a single-vehicle crash on a rural road. Emergency responders discovered a vehicle had left the road on a curve and slid sideways into the ditch until the driver's side smashed into a telephone pole.

The driver, who was the lone occupant of the vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene. The name of the victim has not been released.
